Parse Strings Indicates if parsing of data type is required. Parsing of input data should be done for all time, timestamp, and string fields unless your input is IPC or RT

Schemas Require a Timestamp Partition Column

Schemas require a timestamp data column. In addition, the table should be partitioned and sorted (interval, historic and/or real-time) by this timestamp column. This can be configured as part of the set up wizard, or with the essential and advanced properties of a schema.

Load Schema
